Pros

Initially when I started with the organization there was a great work/life balance. Soda, snacks, and monthly Costco trips were common-place. So was Nerf Gun battles between offices. Around 2008-2009 this all ended. The organization shifted to a more hard-core approach and eliminated any of the free office benefits. The organization still has a good reputation in the industry and some really talented folks working for them.

Cons

Drastically below-average salaries Management does not heed advice Focused purely on Defense Contracts and does not utilize talent well Many talented folks leaving No support for the IT department. The current CIO is a Network guy who's been with the organization since it was a single small office. Management does not want to spend the money on IT infrastructure.

Advice to Management

Provide training to management Do not promote people just because they've been there a long time, promote people with management skills

    Pros

    I was able to work on some very interesting, cutting edge computer vision problems as an intern. Comparing the work I did at Progeny to work elsewhere, I would take the Progeny work any day because of my interests.

    Cons

    The working space was a little dull and development was disorganized. The location is not within walking distance to any food or parks, so lunch breaks often required cars.

    Advice to Management

    I would definitely invest in more open workspaces. Cubes and offices are a thing of the past. An open workspace allows for constant communication and collaboration which was lacking in my experience.
